UPDATE: As the concern over the spread of coronavirus grows and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announcing a statewide stay at home order until April 29, most events in our area have been canceled or put on hold. Concert promoter Live Nation is currently working with artists to reschedule some of the dates listed below. To check the status of your event, visit livenation.com/eventstatus.
From April to October, Charlotte’s two amphitheaters are where you can catch some of your favorite artists under the stars. Shows are still being announced for the upcoming season, so check back often as we continue to update our list.
Here’s what you need to know before you go:
The Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre, at the AvidXchange Music Factory at 1000 North Carolina Music Factory Blvd., has a capacity of 5,000 -- 2,000 reserved seats and a general admission lawn area. There's no roof, so even the reserved seats are not covered. Parking costs $10.
The larger PNC Music Pavilion is in University City at 707 Pavilion Blvd. The venue’s capacity is almost 19,000, offering approximately 8,614 reserved, theater-style seats (some are covered) and room for about 10,000 people on the lawn. There is no charge for parking at PNC, but VIP parking is available at a cost.
Generally, blankets and lawn chairs are permitted at both venues for lawn ticket holders.
Pro tip: Both venues allow fans to bring in one unopened (factory sealed) bottle of water up to 1 gallon in size or an empty refillable plastic water bottle. At PNC, complimentary water stations are located at Guest Services inside Gate 2.
You’re also permitted to bring in food as long as you pack it in a clear, 1-gallon zip-close bag.
Unless noted otherwise, tickets for most shows are on sale at Ticketmaster.com.
